Tortle Midliner

The Tortle Midliner allows you to position and hold small babies (﹤1500 g) in a variety of neutral positions, revolutionizing the way sick infants can be cared for. The device requires less manipulation than most devices currently on the market while eliminating the need for adjustments that are disruptive to a premature or ill baby. 

As a versatile medical device, the Tortle Midliner is compatible with the medical devices and procedures within a NICU, allowing hospital staff members to easily perform necessary practices with maximum accessibility and minimal interruption to the patient. With the Tortle Midliner, micro-preemies can be managed in the neutral position required in IVH protocols during the first three-plus days of life.
